  3. Recent report on water productivity mapping of various crops has suggested that there is a lot of variability in terms of consumption of water in different regions for similar crops It is time to shift the focus of Agricultural systems from land to water productivity. DISCUSS. Indian agriculture consumes about 80% of all the countries water resources Punjab producers much less amount of rice from every metre cube of irrigation water than that in Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh Such differences are more evident in land then and water consumption

  4. List out the major reasons for frequent floods in North Eastern region of the country what are the various approaches of disaster management and mitigation.? the optimum management of water resources is a cross-cutting task which requires multi-sectoral interventions and concerted strategy, including management of catchment areas in upper reaches involving concerned central ministries and state governments . The Brahmaputra and Barak river systems, which account for one-third of India's run-off, are highly prone to floods

  5. A committee by Niti Ayog along with ministry of Development of north eastern region has been constituted The Committee would facilitate optimising benefits of appropriate water management in the form of hydro- electric power, agriculture, bio-diversity conservation, reduced flood damage erosion, inland water transport, forestry, fishery and eco-tourism. Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER) will serve as the coordinating point. The Committee will submit its report, including Plan of Action, by June, 2018.

  6. The topographical and the geographical location of the North Eastern Region (NER) is unique in the sense that the hydro- meteorological situation has made it one of the highest rainfall zones in the world with an average annual rainfall of 200o mm. This region also has a dense network of drainage channels with as many as seven (7) river basins being situated in this region itself. The region, as such, is very rich in water resources. But this ha:s never before been tapped or utilized or conserved properly. Reasons As a result, the need for better and more irrigation facilities in the region is being felt increasingly. Water resources should be utilized and tapped properly for irrigation, generation of hydro power and watershed management. On the other hand, the adverse effects of torrential rains like erosion and flood should also be minimized, especially in this region which is regularly ravaged by the menaces of flood and erosion

  7. Explain the occurrence of ndian monsoon and its variability due to global phenomena. What arethe possible impacts of climate change on the same. Various theories explaining Indian monsoon The seasonal reversal of winds and the associated rainfall This word is derived from the arabic word "Mausim". The annual oscillation in the apparent position of the Sun betweenthe Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn causes the annual oscillation in the position of thethermal equator (region of maximum heating) on the Earth's surface. This is associatedwith the annual oscillation of temperature, pressure, wind, cloudiness, rain etc. . This is thecause of the monsoons. On the Earth's surface, there are asymmetries of land andOcean.

  8. The differential heating of land and Ocean cause variations in the intensity of theannual oscillation of the thermal equator and hence regional variations in the intensity ofmonsoon. The southwesterly wind flow occurring over most parts of India and Indian Seas gives rise to southwest monsoon over India from June to September
